Audrey was invited to teach three first grade classes on butterflies. She prepared a slide showÂ sharing how she startedÂ and some things she has learnedÂ about Monarchs. Then she read one of her favorite butterfly books, Gotta Go! Gotta Go! by Sam Swope and Sue Riddle, hadÂ a question time and interacted with the students for 45 minutes in eachÂ class.
All three classes were completely different. Â The first class knew a lot about Monarchs. Â They had raised a few and were bringing in more caterpillars and “critters” for the class to enjoy. Â The caterpillars in the other classes had stopped growing and the students never got to see their full metamorphosis.
All of the children were curious about Audrey’s butterflies, even students we saw in the hallway as we walked between classes. It was a good morning for us as Audrey was able to pass on her love of butterflies to a new group ofÂ children.
